Pre-Wedding: Words cannot describe how happy we are with Annmarie! We met her in person for our engagement session, about 8-9 months before the wedding. Neither my husband nor I have ever been very comfortable being photographed (and usually ha...
te the way we look in pictures) but she made us feel completely at ease. Any fears we had about being followed by a photographer for an entire day were completely squashed after our first session with her.
Wedding Day: From the moment she arrived the day of, Annmarie was the perfect balance of professional and friendly, involved, yet out of the way, and aware, but not overbearing. She was positive and calm when she wanted to capture relaxed, natural moments -- but she was also assertive enough to make sure she got the best shots. Leading up to the wedding day, we discussed the way she would approach shooting at our venue, and how she would go about doing various photos including just the two of us, our wedding party, and family photos; this was accompanied by a realistic timeline of the day's events to leave plenty of time for all the photos. Annmarie’s organization, as well as her second shooter, allowed for us to enjoy our cocktail hour without feeling flustered or like a photo was missed with an important family member. She not only did a great job with the family formals, but worked hard to capture the brief moments that were actually important to us -- our first look, my mom bustling my gown, my brother tying my husband’s bow-tie, and so many others. For us, it was great to have someone who wanted to capture our day as it happened -- not tell us how she would be posing it.
Post-Wedding: The morning after the wedding, I woke up to an e-mail in my inbox from Annmarie with about 10 fully edited photos from the night before – the wedding party, the first look, walking down the aisle, the first dance. All perfectly cropped and ready for sharing on social media (and no watermarks on any of her photos)! It was such a thoughtful move, and was so nice to be able to share a few photos without having to wait for the full gallery! Perhaps needless to say, the final gallery was also absolutely stunning.
Overall, my husband and I were so incredibly happy with Annmarie throughout the whole process and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an energetic, talented, and passionate photographer. You not only get a photographer, but someone who is going to candidly capture your day in a way that lets you relive it for the rest of your lives! The best choice we made on our special day was having Annmarie as our photographer. Our day was perfectly captured!
